Guess who managed to get his photo in the local paper? Bill is in the back row on the left hand sideWe joined fellow Big Rig members to a happy hour on Thursday evening and a BBQ was held for the HF Radio club members at Saturday lunchtime. The Lion’s club was flat our cooking meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day and I am sure they were rewarded for their hard work by lots of sales. There were bush poet breakfasts each day and lots of other exciting things. We raised over $27,000.00 for charity from the gate takings on Open day, raffles, the fashion parade and donations etc. The main recipients were the Rural Fire Station and some money went towards The Riding for Disable and McGrath Foundation and rugs donated by the ladies were given to the Salvation Army for distribution to the nursing homes in the area. (Over 400 rugs were made at this rally). So it’s not all just laughs and fun we do serious things also.
We need to spend a little R & R to recuperate as we did quite a bit of walking (and Talking) at the rally and I for one am exhausted.
Talk again soon
